I am very exited to tell you I will be speaking in Kansas City on September 12-13 at The University of Kansas Medical Center. This event is sponsored by the Center for Interprofessional Education. I met the KU interprofessional team at the Collaborating Across Borders event in Vancouver, Canada this past June. They were intrigued by my message of patient communication and were surprised how of my work much stems from family experiences in the Kansas City area and The University of Kansas.
My Keynote speech is "The Eye of the Storm" and I will speak twice on Septemeber 12th. The title of my speech references the happy years my late husband Fred Holliday spent in Kansas as he pursued his doctorate degree and the years I spent managing the Art Dept. at the Jayhawk Bookstore in Lawrence Kansas. It was a lovely time compared to the maelstrom circling around us. We had no idea the challenges we would soon face in the world of healthcare and patient data access.
You can register here to attend the speech at noon-1:00 and here to attend the speech at 3:30-5:00 on the 12 th.
I also will be hosting a social media workshop entitled "When Art Is No Longer Just a Pretty Picture" on the 13th at noon-1:00 and you can register here and will also be live-painting onsite in the mornings.
I hope to see you there!
